Update in Alaska

From NBC's Doug Adams
They are counting votes in Alaska today. The Elections Divisions is updating results all day, and as of 5:00 pm ET, Joe Miller's lead over incumbent Lisa Murkowski had narrowed slightly.

Miller began the day with a 1,668-vote lead. But the latest results show the margin now down to 1,460 votes.

A total of about 5,300 votes have been added to the totals today, with more to come.

After today, there will be two more days of counting -- on Friday Sept. 3 and Wednesday Sept. 8, when a final count will be released. Results are to be certified on Sept. 17.
